    As a business traveler, I think Hiltons changes over the past 5 or 6 years have been great. I'm gonna bite on this one.


    As of maybe 5 years ago, I have moved from Marriot to Hilton and the ability to get nice hotels for business travel and cheaper ones for personal trips like their Hampton brand has been spectacular. Not to mention my business trip points usually cover my vacations. Couldn't do that with Marriot as the price points were a tad too high.

    Agreed, I'm not much of a traveler but I've been to enough hotels to say that I like Hilton the best. They just added a new one over by where I live and it is awesome, I always told myself that if Blackstone ever took them public I would buy.

    Any idea if this will be a REIT?

    Seems way too small... Are they only selling 10% or less?
